Expert Help — When You Need It Most

For Fast Emergency Help, Call (248) 646-2273

Few things can be as jarring, debilitating and terrifying as a dental emergency. Damage, infections, or injuries to the mouth are usually extremely painful. Accidental injuries often leave patients confused, anxious for quick relief without knowing where to turn for help.

Unfortunately, dental emergencies are very common – especially in the case of injuries involving children. When an accident or other sudden, unexpected dental problem arises, it’s vitally important that you receive an accurate assessment and effective treatment as soon as possible in order to stop pain, prevent further damage, and prevent complications.

If you or someone you love is experiencing dental pain, call Comfort Dental immediately. We’ll work quickly to establish a thorough and accurate diagnosis, take measures to manage pain, and take immediate corrective action. When emergencies occur, please call as soon as possible: The sooner we hear from you, the sooner we’ll be able to arrange appropriate treatment.

Dental Emergencies: What To Do First

By their nature, dental emergencies are unexpected. When an accident or other emergency takes you by surprise, the steps you take first can be vitally important in producing a positive outcome.

  • Remain calm.
  • Call Comfort Dental Immediately at (248) 646-2273
  • If an injury involved a significant blow to the head or any loss of consciousness, even if only momentary, go to a hospital emergency room immediately for examination and treatment. Dental issues can be addressed later.
  • If bleeding from the mouth is evident, try to stop any bleeding with a clean washcloth or gauze.
  • Check for broken and/or missing teeth. If there are missing teeth, look for them, and bring them with you.
  • Do not ignore the problem – delaying treatment increases the risk of permanent damage, as well as the need for more expensive/extensive treatments later.
